2 ½ years later
In the middle of October
I sat on the edge of the bathtub for what it felt like ages after I got home. I stared at the stick that was in my hands, my mouth dropped in shock and my fingers shaking.
The word 'Pregnant' couldn't be any clearer, even if I took only three home tests they still say the same thing. I drew in a deep breath and trying to figure out on how to tell Jason. I looked down at my stomach and I know I have to buy black maternity pants for work now. Not to mention maternity shirts also.
Yep, I would definitely need new clothes.
It's been almost three years since Jason and I got married. I know can you believe it? I still can't believe it and I am enjoying every moment of it. I thought that marriage wasn't in the cards after what happened that summer. Almost a year after we were together, I come home to the backyard in candles and Jason in the middle of the backyard on his knee with a ring.
The nightmares have been away for a long time. I still have them less often but I know Jason is there to help me calm down about it.
My mom did her jail sentence my sister and I dropped the restraining order and we had reconnected for awhile until a year ago. She didn't come to the wedding or sent a gift. I guess she was back to her normal self I guess.
Kris had met a guy named Chase and he isn't part of no cult or anything like that. He has a job and makes a living for himself. Something's telling me that another pair of wedding bells will be in the air.
Now I'm in my bathroom, on the edge of the bathtub with a positive pregnancy test. I mean sure we have talked about kids when we had enough but now this is all a shock to me. Just three hours ago at work, I wouldn't imagine being pregnant.
Three hours prior….
"What are you drinking?" Tara asked me with a disgusted look on her face at work.
"Water?" I replied.
"I can see that but why are you dripping the juice from the orange in it?"
"I have no idea I mean I tried it out a few days ago and it's not bad" I replied. "Plus it sort of helped the stomach bug I've been having the past week and a half."
"I'm surprised your husband let you come in" Lafayette said from the kitchen.
"I'm think I'm more surprised that Sam let you work" Tara mumbled.
"Oh trust me you have no idea" I said. I grabbed the tray and delivered the food to my customers. I tried to have some energy today after I had my vomit episode before I came into work. Sam was hesitant at first to let me work since I walked in today looking like a ghost. I told him if I had a few more sickness spells, he's more than welcomed to send me home.
"I just hope Kris doesn't know you're working while you're sick" Sookie said.
"Believe me with everything going on in her life, I don't want to add the stress" I said.
I started to drink up my drink when Tara snatched it out of my hands. "I'm sorry but I might get sick from watching you drink this" she said.
"My drink" I said, pouting.
"Girl, you ate almost about half the box of cereal bars yesterday" Lafayette said.
"Hey no one asked you and besides, those were good" I said, defensively. Then I felt the familiar feeling in my stomach rising to my throat.
"Oh god" I said, running towards the bathroom. I was just lucky enough to make it to the toilet before spilling out the contents.
What the hell is wrong with me? I got done and leaned against the wall in defeat. I heard the door open and someone coming in.
"Are you okay?" Arlene asked.
"I was until now" I replied weakly. She smiled sadly as she helped me up.
"I remember when I was having my kids, I was having morning sickness like crazy" she said.
"What are you talking about? I can't be having a baby" I said, as I was washing my face. I mean sure, Jason and I have talked about having kids but it wouldn't be for awhile at least.
"Jill, I know the symptoms I've been there before."
"I know but I haven't had sex since three weeks ago and my period wasn't supposed to be due until four days…ago" I said as realization hits me.
"Holy crap" I whispered. "You don't think?"
"Only one way to find out" she said. Arlene then left me alone with my thoughts. Me, having a baby? No way, it was impossible but it kind of makes sense. Sort of.
I left the bathroom in a daze and continued to work to get my mind off of it until I got out of work. I practically ran out of Merlotte's and headed towards the drugstore where I picked up three tests. I got home awhile later and did what the tests told me and waited since I was home alone.
Looking back, I couldn't help but have a smile. I was going to be a mom. But how would he take the news?
"Anyone home?" I heard his voice called out from outside the bathroom. I shoved the box in the garbage pail and the test in my pocket and splashed some water on my face.
"Back so soon?" I asked as I came out of the bathroom.
"Hey, you feeling alright" he said as he kissed and hugged me.
"Do you have to smell that bad?" I asked jokingly.
"Honey I have to work and I can't help it but sweat. I thought you like that on a guy" he said.
"I do on you but I don't want your sweat on me" I said, wiping myself. I looked at him as he gave me that smile that I always loved.
It's now or never.
"Jason, I need to tell you something" I said, moving closer to him and grabbing his hand and then I led him towards the couch.
"Well what is it?" he asked, concern etching across his face.
How in hell was I going to tell him? "You know how I've been sick for the past few days?" I asked. He nodded letting me continue.
"Well I now know why I was having those vomit episodes since Arlene brought up a good point at work" I replied. "It's um, well, you and me, shit I don't know how to put it."
"Jill whatever it is, I'm sure it's not bad" he said.
"Fine then, Jason I'm pregnant" I said.
The saying time stands still felt like it was a literal meaning as Jason sat there in shock. "What? How did it happen?"
"Jason I think we know how it happened three weeks ago" I replied, narrowing my eyes a bit.
He sat there, staring at me and then at my stomach. Then his eyes averted back to my face.
"I know it wasn't going to be for awhile before we started a family and I was shocked myself but I just want you to know that I'm still going to be having this baby whether you like it or not-"
Jason wrapped his arms around me suddenly and pressed his lips on to mine hard. He pulled away and cupped my face with the biggest grin on his face.
"We're goin' to have a baby? I'm goin' to be a dad?"
"Yeah we're going to have a baby" I replied as I felt tears coming down my face. Only this time, it was happy tears.
Suddenly, Jason lifted me up and swung me around while I shrieked and laughed as he put me down. "How did you know?" he asked.
"I had to take three tests to make sure after Arlene tipped me off about what she went through with her kids" I replied. "At first I didn't believe her until I told her about how we had sex three weeks ago and I missed my period for like four days."
"Why didn't you wait until we did that together?"
"What if it came out negative? I wouldn't want to bring hopes up, I'm sorry" I replied.
"Don't be just next time, let's deal with it together" he said, kissing my forehead and hugged me.
"Why don't we just get through this pregnancy before we have anymore?" I asked. I leaned back on the couch and closed my eyes.
"You alright?" Jason asked.
"Yeah I'm trying to let the nausea go away" I replied. Unfortunately, my stomach begged to differ. "Scratch that." I jumped out of my spot and ran towards the bathroom where I did the usual routine.
A second later, I heard Jason coming into the bathroom as I sat up against the tub. "I hope you're ready for morning sickness and me being a fat whale" I said.
"You won't be fat" he said, taking a seat next to me.
"Oh starting up the suck ups aren't you?" I asked.
"That and I'm being honest" he replied. I put my head on his shoulder.
"I can't believe we're going to be parents" I said.
"How are you feeling about that?" he asked. I looked up at him as his eye bore into mine.
"In all honesty, I can't believe it. I'm in shock but it's a good shock. I should deserve this happiness with all the shit I've went through" I replied.
"I know and believe me I may not know how you dealt with it but that's behind us now and we got a little one growin' inside of you" he said.
I smiled brightly as he brought his lips to mine. "I love you" I said after we pull away.
"I love you too" he said. "Now we do need to talk about you working with the baby. You know I don't want to risk anything with you and the baby while you're working or what not just basically, you should be careful whenever you're moving around…"
"Jason, we just found out. I'm sure the doctor will explain everything when we go tomorrow" I said.
"Okay it's just I don't want nothing to happen to the both of you" he said.
"I know and no crazy people or anything would stop our happiness" I said.
I couldn't believe we're going to be parents but I know for a fact we're not perfect. We have our flaws but I know that somehow me arriving in Bon Temps that day two and a half years ago would change our lives completely.
I guess that's why love is such a crazy thing to feel.
